is a requirement for membership in the Republican party.
(that would be the party that is currently in control

China

Chinese Christians tried to take a huge bite out of China in 1851
but European Christians came to the rescue and stopped them in 1864.



So Christians lose a point for killing a bunch of people to get their land
but other Christians came to the rescue and sided against their own religious brethren;
so I guess we can call this one "a wash."

Russia

In the mid-twentieth century Stalin tried to impose secularism on Russia ... He failed.
The Christian backlash has been substantial.
Their current leader Putin (who apparently plans to hold power for life) is a devout Christian.
The Russian Orthodox Church (Christians) represent about 80% of all Russians -
a higher Christian percentage than found in America (~70%).

So what do Christians do, in a majority Christian nation?
The same thing Muslims do, in a majority Muslim nation -
they attack anyone who refuses to submit to their domination.

Anywhere you go on Earth ... it is what religion does.

Russia passes anti-gay bill

But that's not all.

To consolidate power and insulate themselves from attack,
the Christian Russian Orthodox Church (CROC) is emulating American Evangelicals
by attempting to turn Russia into a "Christian nation."
Unfortunately, Russia does not enjoy the protection
of a "First Amendment" as does America,
so Christians in Russia are marching toward a theocracy nearly unopposed.
Russia is heading back into the Dark Ages.

This is not a good thing.

Insulting religion is now a crime

"Thou Shalt Not Kill "

The most meaningless of all God's Commandments

It took the Church hundreds of years to admit wrongdoing in the Galileo affair.
This time it only took them 20 years to confess their guilt in Rwanda.
Now, if we could just convince them to stop protecting their child rapists
we might someday see Conservative Catholics
take their place among civilized human beings.

(which means that they would no longer be "Conservative" Catholics)

Evolution Meets Christianity: Christianity Wins

Christianity is like a spreading cancer
that will suck your money and dilute your education,
as this story just demonstrated.
Even Scientology would be less destructive.
Plus you would be entitled to free visits from Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
Compare that to what the Christians are offering you ...
Kirk Cameron and Pat Robertson

Not to mention, that with Scientology,
you don't have to worry about that whole "Eternal Torture" thing.
Seriously Korean dudes, if you are going to screw up your country ...

Bad Christian arguments:
"Without God there is no objective morality "

The argument of Objective Morality is self-defeating
because the morality that God tries to impose on humans,
is not even followed by God himself, and is therefore ...

not objective

And objective according to which version?
And according to which denomination?

There are so many to choose from;
and all of them differ ... some drastically.


Here is God's idea of morality ...

Bad Christian arguments:
"There can be no charity without God "

First, point out that their faith "instructs" them to give. Then ask them:
"Without an invisible ghost to threaten you for disobeying, would you still give?

If they say "yes" - then ask "Then why does one need God to be charitable?"
If they say "no" - then they are only giving out of self-interest.

Or you could just send them this ...

This statement was made on the floor of the U.S. senate in 1850

Slavery was established by decree of almighty God ...
It is sanctioned in the Bible, in both testaments, from Genesis to Revelation ....
"

Well Mr. Davis, I'm afraid I have some rather bad news for you:
it has been disestablished by decree of "We the people."
And if you think that's bad, you wouldn't even believe
how many other biblically-sanctioned religious freedoms we've retracted ...

I sent the following email to dozens of Conservative Christians:

"In Exodus, your God bragged about murdering countless innocent Egyptian babies.
Then He created a holiday (Passover) to celebrate the slaughter of these babies.
My question isn't about Him though. My question is about you ...
Why would any moral human being worship such a hideous murdering beast?

And a follow-up question:

Since you do - how could you be considered anything other than monsters yourselves? 
"

For some odd reason, not one of them was willing to stand up and defend his God.

This paragraph was copied from the home page of Christian apologist, Wintery Knight:

"Dr. Craig is willing to debate. Where are the atheist debaters?
Why are atheists afraid of Dr. Craig?
Why are they afraid of his arguments?
What do they have to lose that stops them
from putting their arguments and evidences up against his?
 "

So guess what follows this paragraph on his web site?
video after video of atheists debating Craig!

William Lane Craig
vs
Christopher Hitchens on the existence of God

William Lane Craig
vs
Bart Ehrman on the resurrection of Jesus

William Lane Craig
vs
Sam Harris on morality

Aren't their feeble little minds precious?
No wonder this guy can't find any contradictions in the bible.
He doesn't even know what they are.
I've found the perfect description for "Wintery Knight":

Bad Christian arguments:
"No morality without God "

This poll shows that the more backwards and barbaric the nation,
the more likely they are to connect morality with belief in god.
(and notice how America went out of its way to embarrass itself ... yet again)



Conservative Christians claim that without their God, humans cannot be moral;
yet countless social animals and insects live in peaceful, cooperative societies.
If they can do it, why can't humans?

Lab rats won't press a bar to receive food
if they see that by pressing that bar,
a rat in an adjacent cage will receive a shock.

Bats will regurgitate blood to share with another bat
who wasn't able to find a meal.

If Christian claims are true, then I guess that means
that the rats and bats must have accepted Jesus Christ
as their personal Lord and Savior?

Do we need God to be moral?

Apes provide the answer

Actually, a good case could be made ...
that we have devolved.

Why do many animals live in peaceful, cooperative societies, without Jesus,
but Conservative Christians seem to think that humans are incapable of doing so?

Did you know that some rats won't press a bar to receive food
if they see that the pressing of that bar
delivers a shock to another rat in the next cage?

Did you know that bats will regurgitate some blood
to share with another bat who wasn't able to find a meal?

Conservative Christians claim that you need religion to be moral.
So I guess that means that the rats and bats
must have accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

Without the Bible where do Atheists get their morals?
Well, read about this experiment involving lowly rats. As far as I know ...
none of them accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

The morality of rats

So much for needing Jesus to provide morals.
Morals have existed since way before Jesus ever hammered His first nail;
in societies that never heard of "Him"; since way before humans even existed;
and will likely exist long after humans abandon ghost worship.

I NOW SUPPORT THE PUBLIC POSTING OF THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

I will agree that the 10 Commandments should be posted
anywhere Christians desire to post them;
including schools, courtrooms, libraries, and outside of any public buildings,
provided that ...

Christians agree to post the REAL 10 Commandments.

That would be the permanent set that God gave Moses (as described in Exodus 34);
not the set in Exodus 20 that Moses smashed.
(That first set of Commandments was in effect for what? A week? Two weeks?)
Anyway, God replaced that first set of Commandments with a permanent set.
Here is that permanent set that God gave Moses: The REAL 10 Commandments;
and the only set referred to in the Bible as ... The 10 Commandments:

Exodus 34: verse ...

14 "For thou shalt worship no other god "

17 "Thou shalt make thee no molten gods "

18 "The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep "

19 "But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb:
and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck 
"

21 "Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest "

22 "And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks "

23 "Thrice in the year shall all your menchildren appear before the LORD God "

25 "Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven "

26 "The first of the firstfruits of thy land
thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God 
"

26 "Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk "

27-28 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words:
for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights;
he did neither eat bread, nor drink water.
And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant ... The Ten Commandments"

For those of you who prefer videos, this will explain it to you ...

Christian terrorists strike in Oregon

Why did I call them "Christian terrorists" instead of militiamen?
Because I believe in calling people what they are
and this quote from the article by Ammon Bundy ... proves me right:

"The Hammond’s need our prayers.
Please take the time and get on your knees as soon as possible
and pray to our Father above for the Hammond’s.
They need our sincere prayers.
They need the Spirit of the Lord to be upon them
that they may have strength and knowledge.
"

Here's a quote from another one of the Conservative Christian terrorists:

"The man identifying as Captain Moroni said he was inspired by the call,
and that the inspiration was validated by God
in the form of a flock of geese he saw flying.

1961

Christians believe that their invisible ghost can see everything they do,
and can hear every thought they think.
They believe that their invisible ghost
has the power to send them to a place of eternal torture.

That is why they can read countless stories about their God murdering people,
and threatening to torture billions more,
and seriously state that He is a God of love and wisdom.

What could possibly explain how modern humans
could be capable of such blindness?
There is only one emotion that can explain it ... fear.

If you are a member of "Hulu," watch this video and you will see,
that what was presented as science fiction, is only too real.
